Low emissions intensity lime and cement

LEILAC will successfully pilot a breakthrough technology that will enable both Europe’s cement and lime industries to reduce their emissions dramatically while retaining, or even increasing, international competitiveness. LEILAC will develop, build and operate a 240 tonne per day pilot plant demonstrating Direct Separation Calcining technology which will capture over 95% of the process CO2 emissions.

Building upon its expertise and experience in the cement sector, Quantis will assess the environmental performance of the developed novel cement technology and how it compares to conventional technologies, thereby helping to minimise the environmental risks prior to the final design.
